This vintage swimsuit was made in the late 1930s. It is made of burgundy wool with belt loops and side piping. It has a false fly seam, snapped coin/key pocket and built in supporter.
This hat was made in the 1950s by the Champ Hat company. It is a high grade milan summer straw hat, with a bound brim, teardrop porkpie blocking and a nicely executed wide ribbon and bow. There is a satin liner tip and a leather sweatband. The sweatband isn’t in very good shape, but the rest of the hat is. These old high quality milans are hard to come by (lots of cheap milans back in the day), and sweatband replacement isn’t very hard or expensive.
These vintage swim trunks were made by Arrow (yes that Arrow- the one that made shirts and ties) in the late ’40s or 1950s. They have an atomic / Hawaiian seashell print on the front panel, and a woven satin- type fabric on the back- probably some kind of acetate blend. The front is lined and they have a key pocket and drawstring waist.
This vintage men’s swimsuit was made in the 1950s by Campus Sportswear. They are cotton with racing stripes down the side seams. They have a flapped key pocket and an elastic waist. The front is lined. The elastic in the waist is still in great shape and stretchy. Some light stains from storage, but I think they would come out. They are tagged a size 30-32
